George Miller’s original MAD MAX trilogy is still fondly remembered and considered an 80s action-packed classic. MAD MAX 2: THE ROAD WARRIOR in particular has some of the most frenetic and jaw-dropping sequences in cinema history. So this writer is eager to see what’s in store for our post-apocalyptic hero in the forthcoming reboot MAD MAX: FURY ROAD. With original director Miller back, and Tom Hardy taking over Mel Gibson’s iconic title role, THN can’t wait to see the character return in what’s been a long-gestating project.
Already confirmed to join Hardy in the first of what’s expected to be a duo of adventures shot back-to-back (the other entitled MAD MAX: FURIOSA), are Charlize Theron (sporting a new look which we recently reported here), Nicholas Hoult, Riley Keough, Zoe Kravitz and Adelaide Clemens. Just as that cast was starting to look impressive, the name Rosie Huntington-Whitely has dampened expectations – the TRANSFORMERS 3 actress and model will also appear. Perfectly fine to look at – stunningly beautiful in fact – but her work on Michael Bay’s blockbuster sequel was widely criticised for being more than a little wooden.
MAD MAX: FURY ROAD will begin shooting in South Africa next month, for those yet to see the great-looking vehicles we reported would be involved a few months ago, you can check them out here.
